GoGo News’s tagline is “Big News for Little People,” and the site delivers on this with short posts on current events as well as some longer, more in-depth posts. Readers can respond to the articles in moderated comments, ensuring that any discussion on the site is kid-appropriate. The content is broken up into several areas: Planet, Cool, Fun, Picks, In-Depth and Teach, allowing users to easily find content that interests them.
The site’s design is clean and easy to navigate, with an airy look and three-color scheme giving it a modern feel. The photos accompanying articles add visual appeal, and some articles also include videos. Each piece lists a date, so users can instantly judge whether the material is fresh.
This site offers a lot in a small package. Kids can learn about a variety of current events from short, succinct posts. The longer, more in-depth posts are broken up into pithy facts arranged under headings, so that the material is easily digestible and offers many possibilities for classroom use.
In my opinion, this site would be good for Language Arts for students aged about 8-11. -JL
